mmm-yoso!!! is the blog about food. Food we eat out and food we eat at home and food we think about eating.
Hi. Well, this is the third "$5 Friday" meal I am showing you. It is what I prepare when I find stuff on sale at local grocery stores and do the cooking. Everything here is kind of simple, tasty and what was available when I went shopping, save for a few "staples" I have around the house.
You also need a can of beer- any kind will do. Even soda pop, sweetened (not with that artificial stuff in it), some seasoned salt and a bunch of rosemary. I have a Rosemary plant, apparently the Chernobyl variety, that grew from a 50¢ garage sale mini pot into a 3 foot by 3 foot monster of a bush.
It also helps if you have one of these contraptions placed in a pan. It holds a can. It cost 88¢ at WalMart years ago. You can get one for about $15 if you want to shop elsewhere. All of them work the same way. It holds a can. It also will keep the chicken upright.
Stuff the can with rosemary. Put can into contraption. Put seasoned salt on the chicken. All sides.
Place the chicken in the center of the grill.
Our grill has three burners and I put the sides on low and leave the center one off.
The basic premise is that the inside beverage boils and therefore steam cooks from the inside and the outside cooks, skin burns and gets crispy.

Drink half the can of beverage. Stuff can with fresh rosemary. Mount chicken upright with can inside cavity. Place on pan. Heat gas grill on low so there is radiant heat from all sides. Cook until juices run clear.
